The Tom Finucane Branch of Comhaltas Ceoltoiri Eirann (CCE) hosts Traditional Irish Music Clubs most Saturdays at the Pittsford Recreation Center to learn new tunes and practice technique in a friendly setting. They are a great way to get started for beginners or expand repertoire for intermediate musicians. Adults and children are welcome. Clubs are free and open to the public.
The Flute and Whistle Club meets the second Saturday of the month, 10am - 12pm, at the Pittsford Recreation Center, 35 Lincoln Ave, Pittsford, NY 14534.
There are two groups of the Flute and Whistle Club:
1. Beginners, using teaching CDs and learning by ear.
2. Players with a working knowledge of the instrument and know some common session tunes. Discussions range from care and maintenance, to purchasing flutes, to learning by ear, and use of ornamentation.
